Re: Coningsby Night Flying

How often do they night fly ? Is there any pattern how often it happens or just random. I notice the last time was earlier this month, so how likely is it to happen again next week when I am heading up there ? I always keep an eye out for Gary's notams. Thanks in advance for any info.

Re: 2020 Display Typhoon

Has the Typhoon been doing any display practices recently or has it been canned altogether for this year ? I would have thought he would have to keep current in case by some miracle some airshows take place later this year.

Yeah PDA is Tue 14th, with 15th as a backup, but looking at the weather forecast for Tue, I can’t see that being used 😂
You mean back up day the 15th won't be needed ? The weather forecast looks identical on both days at the moment.Heading up there Tuesday regardless.

Re: PDA day date

A lot of people at the base are saying 3rd week of May, for Typhoon at least. I can 100% confirm to you, the Typhoon’s PDA is in May at some point, NOT April Thanks for that mate.I didn't expect the Typhoon PDA to be a bit later than usual as they have retained the same display pilot for another ye...

It's probably too early to ask this but roughly what date does the base close for Christmas ? I break up a few days earlier than usual and was thinking of heading up there to take a few shots.Many thanks in advance to any of you guys who might have some idea.

Re: RAF Coningsby Night Flying Week Commencing 6th Aug 2018

As they are night flying next week,how do Fridays usually work out ? I ask because I have Friday off work and I was thinking of heading up there for at least half a day.I know they stop flying around lunch time on Fridays so will that be it by Thursday night or do they revert back to days for Friday...

One of the best shows at Cosford in years.Did one of the Reds mess the heart up or was it something else they were trying to create ?

I left Cosford at 4.45 today and nothing had validated by then so I expect it will be busy tomorrow.Cloudbase looked a bit low today.

Yes 100%
It seems you have the incorrect airfield opening times for Cosford-10.00 -18.00 Friday and 12.00-19.00 Saturday.Info posted on UKAR.

It's opens at 1400 ON Saturday indeed. Also got told today the reds will park on the West side over the Shawbury airfield this year.
Can you confirm that Cosford airfield opens at 14.00 tomorrow?Many thanks.

People at Cosford said it didn’t validate today .
Thanks for that,I didn't think it would so soon after arriving.Probably just familiarising with the airfield.Hopefully catch it tomorrow afternoon or Saturday.I think Cosford airfield opens at 14.00 hrs on both days.

Re: Cosford Air Show 2018 - Shawbury visitors

MIG29 105 arrived at 16.20 local and after a practice display routine landed around 16.30 with engines off at 16.40. Parked on the south-east apron. Are you sure that it did validate at Cosford or just familiarising with the airfield ?I guess if it was a validation then it won't do another on Frida...

Re: Cosford Air Show 2018 - Shawbury visitors

Rafale display team have tweeted 'See you on the 9th and 10th' which would suggest they are validating sometime on Saturday.
